Melbourne has a reputation as a shopping Mecca and not only do many Australians from other states come here to shop, but we also have regular visitors from Southeast Asia and New Zealand who love to visit and shop till they drop. From the cutting edge to classic, boutique to big time, Melbourne’s vibrant retail scene is alive with alluring labels, products and shopping experiences – some home grown, some world-renowned. Add to that the quirky, the pre-loved and the unique designs - be they clothes, shoes, jewellery, crafts, art or any other items you may think of.

Here are some shots looking north along Elizabeth St in the CBD. To the left one may see the tower of the General Post Office and the high rise tower of Melbourne Central. Passers-by are enticed by the windows of many luxury stores that line this street across the road from Royal Arcade.

This post is part of the Weekend Reflections meme.
